This is a hidden gem in the heart of the popular and centrally located Temescal district in Oakland, CA. It is on a main street yet feels secluded and quiet, set up and back on the 3rd/top floor. It is filled with natural light and has a great view of the Oakland Hills. For decades it has been the site of transformational work - it is ideal for meditation, movement, massage, yoga, community ritual, workshops and more. We welcome all paths, people, genders and orientations. Great for small groups who desire a spacious feel, or larger events of up to about 50 people. For other arrangements or questions about numbers, please contact Host. At about 1800 square feet with a finished wood floor and 100% wool carpets (which can be rolled up) it is equipped with a sound system, refrigerator, microwave, bathroom, pillows, blankets, backjacks, chairs and tables. The floor plan is almost entirely open, with two support beams and small "kitchen" and personal storage area in one corner. Please note the space is on the 3rd floor and only accessible by stairs. It is a 13-minute walk from the MacArthur BART station and easily accessible by car and bus. The neighborhood boasts a variety of gourmet and grab-n-go restaurants and many unique, locally-owned shops.
